filibuster over the surprising delay he is stuck in now. the chuck hagel nomination seemed like it was done. enough republicans had said they would support mr. hagel's nomination. enough republicans had agreed that they should not filibuster him. but he looked ready to be confirmed by the senate. but now it is not clear when that vote might happen, even though if the -- even though the outcome of that vote is a foregone conclusion. the senate armed services committee has now put off its vote on mr. hagel. and that's because 23 senate republicans are demanding that chuck hagel provide specific financial information about private corporations where he has served on the board. not information about the money he made but information about the corporations themselves. the senators are also demanding that chuck hagel give them copies of every speech he has made in the past five years, including notes you utilized for preparation or in giving the remarks, to which former senator hagel has responded, "your request for financial information regarding certain private corporate and non-profit entities
, and remember, the spin stops here, we're definitely looking out. this is a fox news alert. chuck hagel has been stopped by the republicans and we have that upcoming report tonight. and first the passengers on board the disabled carnival triumph cruise ship are making approach and could make landfall this hour. the cruise ship went dark on sunday after a fire broke out in the engine room leaving 4,000 passengers on board stranded and without any power. now, the conditions on the ship have been haroing to say the least with the passengers reporting toilets are overflowing and food is scarce and sewage is everywhere. and joining us jonathan serrie, jonathan. >> reporter: sean, the excitement is building among the family and friends gathered here waiting for this ship to come in. latest estimates coming in between 9:30 and half past midnight central time. a lot of wild cards because this is a ship that's running on limited power. we understand that the winchs aren't working and the docking is going to take time and disemba disembarkation. one functioning elevator and most the passengers are going
emanuel on what is holding up chuck hagel. >> they successfully delayed chuck hagel's controversial nomination as secretary of defense. late today, procedural vote failed after senator john mccain had made the case for waiting until after next week's recess. >> i think that is a sufficient period of time to get answers to outstanding questions and i think that senator hagel after that period of time deserves a cloture vote and a uvote on his. >> i have valued your thoughts and your contributions. i think most all of us in public office feel that way. >> among questions, speeches like to one in june 13, 2008, before the arab american antidiscrimination committee that hagel did not disclose to armed services committee. earlier they blasted republicans for holding up hagel's nomination to lead the pentagon. >> it's shocking that my republican colleagues would leave the nation would a fully empowered secretary of defense. during all the things we have going on in the world, including a war. >> but panetta isn't leaving yet. and 60-vote requirement is not unusual, say republicans and rei
misleading story that chuck hagel talked to a nonexistent group called friends of hamas. never happened. no such group. >>> let me finish with a new bipartisan push for marriage equality. this is "hardball," the place for politics. [ kitt ] you know what's impressive? a talking car. but i'll tell you what impresses me. a talking train. this ge locomotive can tell you exactly where it is, what it's carrying, while using less fuel. delivering whatever the world needs, when it needs it. ♪ after all, what's the point of talking if you don't have something important to say? ♪ >>> >>> it's its marquee matchup in this year's election. it's the virginia governor's race and living up to expectations. we have brand new polling on the race and for that we check the scoreboard. according to a quinnipiac poll it's dead even between the dnc chair and the state's attorney general. 38-38. if that wasn't exciting enough, the lieutenant governor is making noise about running as a third party candidate. if he does, the race remains within the margin of error. wow, look at that. love this stuff. mcauli
certainly has. thanks very much for that, jessica. >>> with republicans baulking at chuck hagel's confirmation as defense secretary, harry reid filed a motion to cut off debate. it will take 60 votes to cut off debate and move to an up or down vote on nomination. the move is scheduled for friday, barring a deal to hold it earlier. >>> take a look at our latest cnn orc poll. when we asked whether the president's address would lead to more bipartisan cooperation, 39% said yes. 53% said no. joining us now, our chief national correspondent john king. john, does this change the dynamic in congress at all? >> that's the big question after the state of the union address. the president lays out a second-term agenda. in our poll, most of the americans who watched the speech liked the speech and boosted the president's proposal just a bit. this is how the president won a second term. 51 to 47. if you look at it from this perspective, he won a pretty convincing electoral college. 332 for obama, 206 for romney. let's come over here and look at a different perspective. last night he was in t
speech last night, members of congress were locked in a bitter fight over the nomination of chuck hagel as the next secretary of defense. in a sharply divided 14-11 vote, the armed services committee sent hagel's nomination to the senate floor but only after hours of intense debate. >> we saw, with his nomination, something truly extraordinary, which is the government of iran formally and publicly praising the nomination of a defense secretary. i would suggest to you that to my knowledge, that is unprecedented to see a foreign nation like iran publicly celebrating a nomination. >> i want to put on the record that this senator feels like that senator cruz has gone over the line. he basically has impugned the patriotism of the nominee in your conclusions, which you are entitled to come to, about him, in essence, about being cozy with iran. >> my friend, senator nelson, i wrote down the words, criticizing our senator there for implying that chuck hagel was cozy with terrorist-type countries, referring to iran. i'd say he's endorsed by them. you can't get any doze zier than that. >> i've go
of this face two moments up on capitol hill. a senate committee may vote to confirm chuck hagel as the next defense secretary. a different committee hold as hearing for the man picked to run the cia. john brennan. for more of these controversial nominees, let's bring in our chief congressional correspondent, dana bash, and gloria borger. dana, what are your sources telling you about chuck hagel's confirmation? >> reporter: well, you know, there are supposed to be at least the chairman, carl levin wants a vote in the senate armed services committee tomorrow but it might not happen. one may reason is that many republicans on the committee don't want it to. we're told that they are circulating a letter urging senator levin to delay it. and they say, these republicans, that they are still waiting for key information from hagel. for example, senator lindsey graham told me he still doesn't p have information about the speeches that hagel gave, who he spoke to, what he said, and what he was paid. and the ranking committee, james inhoff said he's looking for people to slow this train down. senator
he's talking about possibly delaying chuck hagel's nomination. and also wayne lapierre. this is very important. because if you look at the profiles of all the people that committed these mass murders in newtown and aurora and across -- virginia tech, they are all hispanic drug gang leaders. and that's exactly what wayne lapierre said in an op-ed that americans need to buy guns because those latin americans are coming to america, and they're going to kill you people. this is who a lot of republicans in congress are thinking about falling off -- don't do it. don't hurt our party anymore. let wayne lapierre go wherever he wants to go. he's going to destroy the party. we're going to talk about the crazy op-ed has horrible for our party's image, horrible for the conservative movement's image, goes against everything ronald reagan stood for. we'll talk about that in a minute. first, breaking news. this is bizarre. the feel-good story of the olympic games involved in possibly murder. >> this was a total jaw-dropper this morning. oscar pistorius, for those people who don't know, is a south a
senator chuck hagel's confirmation could happen this week. he's trying to be secretary of defense. after the bruising he took on capitol hill, does he stand a chance? we're going to talk with oklahoma senator james inhofe, who's very much against hagel taking the post. >>> then major allegations of fixing soccer again. how do you keep an older car running like new? you ask a ford customer. when they tell you that you need your oil changed you got to bring it in. if your tires need to be rotated, you have to get that done as well. jackie, tell me why somebody should bring they're car here to the ford dealership for service instead of any one of those other places out there. they are going to take care of my car because this is where it came from. price is right no problem, they make you feel like you're a family. get a synthetic blend oil change, tire rotation and much more, $29.95 after $10.00 rebate. if you take care of your car your car will take care of you. good afternoon. chase sapphire. (push button tone) this is stacy from springfield. oh whoa. hello? yes. i didn't realize i'd be
senator, chuck hagel, to be the nation's next secretary of defense. let's go to capitol hill to dana bash. what are you learning? >> reporter: cnn has learned that chuck hagel's confirmation to be the next defense secretary appears to be all but certain. the reason we can report that is by some excellent digging by our producers. what they have found out is they have found at least five republican senators who have said that they would oppose any filibuster to block hagel's nomination. so mathematically what that would mean is even if there would be a filibuster, which is still an if, he would likely have the votes to overcome that and would go on to become the next defense secretary. they talked to a lot of senators, a lot of senators' offices and they came up with five. only two of them are actually going to support hagel's nomination, but the other three, richard burr, john mccain, and todd coburn have all told us they would oppose a filibuster if it came to that. we don't know when the vote will happen. first he has to go through committee. that will likely happen later this week. the
republican senator chuck hagel still has hurdles to jump before becoming the country's next defense secretary. (music throughout) why turbo? trust us. it's just better to be in front. the sonata turbo. from hyundai. >>> there's a job you'd think would have support from basically everyone. it's the job of the secretary of defense. it's supposed to be a nonpartisan position in charge the largest arguably most important segment of the government. but that's far from the case for the president's nominee chuck hagel. joining us now is our chief political analyst gloria borger. carl levin said there will be a vote in the committee tomorrow. is this train leaving the station? >> yeah, i think the train is leaving the station. he wants to have a vote quickly. you have senator lindsey graham, republican, saying that he's going to put a hold on this nomination till he gets some more answers from the administration about the attack on the u.s. mission in benghazi. just listen to what the president's press secretary jay carney said about that, wolf. >> what is unfortunate here is the continuing attempt t
president obama's nominee to be the new secretary of defense, chuck hagel. whether or not they filibuster him that. >> don't have the votes, although at least one republican senator is threatening to try a filibuster anyway. senator lindsey graham of south carolina is also now threatening to put a hold on the hagel nomination, even though there is no precedent for that ever. no cabinet nomination has ever been filibustered or held by a senator. while lindsey graham is making the decision as to whether or not he wants to be famous forever for doing something nobody else has ever done in the history of the senate in order to block chuck hagel, the current defense secretary leon panetta is on his way out. they gave mr. panetta his sendoff on saturday, though it looks like he'll probably be in charge for another week or so. his time has been a period of lasting change for the u.s. military. after the end of the iraq war, he has overseen the beginning of the end of america's longest war ever in afghanistan. the clinton era policy of "don't ask, don't tell" ended under leon panetta's watch, at
that republicans in the senate are using right now to try to stop chuck hagel from being confirmed as our nation's next defense secretary. no cabinet nominee has ever been filibustered in the history of our country. it take ss a majority vote to confirm someone the president wants in his cabinet no one has ever tried to filibuster that before. it has never happened. even though a bunch of republican senators do not want chuck hagel to be defense secretary, they have insisted they would never filibuster him, because of course that would be unprecedented. you don't filibuster cabinet nominees. john mccain said that. lindsey graham said that. they doan like him, but they would not filibuster him. now they are filibustering him any way. those two senators and james inhofe from oklahoma say they will force a 60-vote super majority threshold for confirming chuck hagel for the first time in america for any cabinet nominee. and that is a filibuster. but they are insisting that nobody call it a filibuster, because, of course, they said they wouldn't do that. they are filibustering a cabinet nominee for t
yesterday was chuck hagel who looked like he was going to be confirmed as the next secretary of defense. it looks like he's kind of being filibustered. republicans are saying we're going to put him up for a simple majority vote later this month but we want some answers on benghazi answered and senator lindsay graham is the guy behind it. listen to this. >> the best evidence of what happened that night were the survivors. they will not give the united states congress, the f.b.i. interviews of the survivors. we've been told five different versions of who changed the talking points. this is not transparent. they're delaying, denying, deceiving. they ran out the clock during the election. i will not give up until we know what happened. at the end of the day it is about four dead americans. the way this president handled this situation, his national security team, is a travesty and we need to get to the bottom of it. and we will. >>alisyn: no interviews with survivors provided to the lawmakers. still no idea where the suspects are. they were released and are roaming freely somewhere in the m
around the president. >> what's the latest? the president saying good-bye to leon panetta. chuck hagel hasn't been confirmed -- >> chuck hagel -- at the white house, they're saying he's going to get confirmed. they had the 55 democrat and independent votes that they need. they still say a filibuster would not be successful. but in chuck hagel and in john kerry, what the president has is not a team of rivals. it's more a team of boosters. people he feels comfortable with. that's the way he's going, clearly, in the second term. not a lot of sort of outsiders that he doesn't know or feel will support him. >> we'll know when that final confirmation in the senate armed services committee -- >> we don't. although the chairman has said, you've had requests for more information about financial disclosure, this is more than is required. it's very clear that levin wants to get a vote going quickly. they'd like to have hagel confirmed by the 27th. >> gloria, thanks very much. >>> violent protests erupting on the streets of tunisia. lisa sylvester is monitoring that and some of the other top stori
